Xbox beats PlayStation sales in Japan for first time in eight years

According to Famitsu, the Xbox Series S surpassed both versions of the PlayStation 5 combined in Japan last week.
The last time Microsoft consoles dominated Sony consoles was in 2014, when the Xbox One came out, and there are fewer than 10 total.Sales in the Land of the Rising Sun from May 9 to May 15 (in parentheses, the circulation for the entire time):Nintendo Switch OLED - 35,868 consoles (1,757,019 consoles).Nintendo Switch - 20,443 consoles (18,288,818 consoles).Nintendo Switch Lite - 9,011 consoles (4,719,293 consoles).
Xbox Series S - 6,120 consoles (105,408 consoles).PlayStation 5 - 2,240 consoles (1,385,128 consoles).PlayStation 5 Digital Edition - 453 consoles (235,710 consoles).Nintendo 2DS XL and regular 2DS - 235 consoles (1,185,959 consoles).
Xbox Series X - 105 consoles (99,469 consoles).PlayStation 4 - 22 consoles (7,819,548 consoles).From April 25 to May 8, Xbox Series S was bought 10,610 times, Xbox Series X 3,508 and PS5 49,798.
This gap between neighboring weeks seems to be due to a shortage of non-extgen consoles.Not since the launch of the Xbox One has Xbox outsold PlayStation in Japan.It's happened less than 10 times overall.
